Forum: movies Subject: video footage of live concerts

hi!

i'm thinking of uploading some audience live recordings of shows on the LMA (live music archive) here on archive.org.

*but*: (fan captured) video footage isn't accepted on the LMA. maybe this separate video area here (http://www.archive.org/details/movies) might be a better place???

if so: how to upload non-commercial, royalty-free & homemade DVDs, VCDs, SVCDs???
i've only seen the option of single files like mpeg4... but the stuff i mentioned are edited discs to burn on your own (or watch with VLC or mplayer).

thanks for any help & advice!
sail on,
holger

Hi,

You're welcome to post to Open Source Movies from http://www.archive.org/create/ with any video format.

However, please make sure that the artist whose concert you're posting allows video taping and trading. Just because an artist allows audio taping does *not* mean that they allow video taping.

I would recommend that you put a link in your video's description to the artist's policy on their web site, or some other indication that you have researched the policy and it allows you to record and post this material. Otherwise, movie curators may take it down.

Thanks,

Alexis - IA

thanks for the fast reply. good idea to put them to open source videos. didn't find it on my own.

any format? O.K.! makes things easy. but still a question: any "ususal" format? like mpeg2 is the best or anything like that?

sure! (know this issue.) the artists get asked in advance. self-evident!
...and don't mind: it's only about fan footage and not about TV broadcasts.

thanks again,
holger

Hi,

We prefer mpeg2 videos. We will automatically make smaller versions from that. Thanks!
